Re: ambeserver-install -Has anyone run the Simple Install lately?
I shelved this project for the summer and picked it back up this week. I have my thumbDV working now in my Raspberry Pi 2 model B. This unit builds with the device name ttyUSB0 and I start the server just as you recommended John, with the commands:
sudo systemctl enable ambeserver@ttyUSB0
sudo systemctl start ambeserver@ttyUSB0
sudo systemctl status ambeserver@ttyUSB0
It took me a while to figure out why the python test scripts were not working. The reason was a permissions thing and when preceded the python command with sudo, I verified that my device was working in the pi but not reliably or for very long. I suspected that I had a problem with my pi. In searching "Will ambe server run on a pi 2 model B" I found the thread about ensuring that the power supply is adequate. I changed from a charger block to a real pi power supply and voila! Reliable operation.
So thanks for your help last summer John. I retraced the steps this week and found the problem was the supply.
